Commentary (Australia innings)

A brilliant performance from Pakistan to bowl out the Kangaroos for 89, their 2nd lowest total in T20Is! The Australians never got going from the start and the employment of slog sweep brought about their down fall. Only Warner made some sort of impact with a 25-ball 22 but rest of them struggled and threw away their wickets. The spinners did the damage for Pakistan and scalped 6 of the 10 wickets. It should be an easy chase for Pakistan. Join us in a while for their reply!

The players have made their way out to the middle. David Warner and Shane Watson are the two batsmen at the crease. Mohammad Hafeez will start off proceedings for Pakistan.

Toss - Pakistan have won the toss and and elected to field. Nasir Jamshed and Raza Hasan have been handed their T20I debuts for Pakistan, while Glenn Maxwell makes his T20I debut for Australia. Shane Watson and Cameron White are coming back into the side.

Pitch - A bit of grass on the surface, it will assist bounce and there might be something in it for the seamers.

A hard fought victory in the 3rd ODI at Sharjah saw the Kangaroos clinch the ODI series 2-1. The action now moves on to the shortest format of the game. It was a closely contested ODI series and both teams are up for it, the Australians would be looking to continue the winning momentum and take a lead in the 3 match T20I series, while Pakistan would be looking to hit back hard and start off in a positive fashion in order to gain the much needed confidence. A cracker of a contest is definitely on cards.
